    A journalist capable of generating and producing his or her own news content

    The Double Degree: Journalism + Media Studies and Multimedia responds to the work force’s demand for journalism professionals that are innovative and capable of not only understanding and explaining the essence of what is happening, but also of creating and directly managing audiovisual and multimedia content wherever there is a news story.

    In a society where agility and creativity are key in transmitting content, and in which there are multiple media to transmit information, a wide range of possibilities opens up for professionals who know how to transmit the news message in an efficient and innovative way.

    This Double Degree is more than a combination of both disciplines: it is the sum of the competences that the student acquires in the Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and in the Bachelor’s Degree in Media Studies and Multimedia. Thus, we provide students with the necessary tools to become authentic professionals in content and new forms of media, from television and radio, to Internet, videogames or film, making the most of all the possibilities multimedia technology offers, to give way to a comprehensive professional capable of developing his or her profession in multiple media and in the different roles that are demanded.

    The Double Degree:  Journalism + Media Studies and Multimedia is based on real, practical training from day one, in a professional and international setting. The conjunction of both degrees prepares students for real and comprehensive work force integration in a wide variety of professions, from the most modern Radio, TV or Internet Journalism, to the most advanced corporate and business communication, by means of the creation and production of the most innovative content.

    You will work with first-rate professionals that make up our creative Chairs: Carmen Posadas’ Creative Writing Chair and Luis Bassat’s Creativity Workshop.  The Chairs aim to be a reference in the creation of contents, formats, pieces and designs and they bring together and involve noted professionals, companies, entities, and prestigious organizations to the School.

    In addition, all of your projects will be available to the world on UEMCOM, a real communication platform openly broadcasted to the public that is aimed at and run by our students. UEMCOM faithfully reproduces the working environment you will find upon completing your University studies.
